( laughter ). ( applause ) well, folks, since i debuted the ask-o-matic, all right-- ( cheers and applause ) -- since i debuted this cutting edge technology, the good folks at colbert labs have come up with a game-changing innovation-- a second bucket. now, why is it better? first of all, it's double the buckets. and i can put an iphone inside this bucket. and using face time i can put my face on the outside of the second bucket, thereby teleporting my head on to somebody else's body. and allowing me to be everywhere without going anywhere.

called technologies. >> from a volunteer perspective and manhunt perspective, what seems circuit to you having two suspects instead of one? >> a couple things. now they're looking for two, they didn't assume it was only two. they will focus on these two but also go into this saying there could be three or four they just don't know that. this will help in a couple ways. one, suggests there's probably communications between these two. if they can figure out how they were communicating, they can help build that case and localize where they were using cell phones with two people. and does raise the possibility there is a little more capability here. two people can do more things than one and may have gone in different directions now. it complicates things for them and in some ways gives them additional avenues to find these two and build a case against them. >> personally, my initial reaction watching the press conference, two suspects, this must be some ideologically motivated terrorism we understand terrorism crime. the next thing was columbine was two guys and i don't know what those guy
